Scarborough is Yorkshire's largest seaside resort and one of the first 'traditional' resorts in the UK. While you can still get 'fish 'n' chips' on the sea front and go on a donkey ride in the summer, the resort now also has free wi-fi along the front and the fastest internet connection speed in Europe!
Scarborough Castle looks down from high cliffs on the Harbour area and the beach front. There is an array of cultural and arts options within the town including parks, Stephen Jospeph Theatre, Rotunda Museum, Futurist Theatre, Scarborough Spa Complex (home of the Scarborough Spa Orchestra) and the Opera House Casino.
If you're short of time however, you really can't beat an ice-cream and a walk along the sand.
